In 2014 Oct 13 I was trapped by a devastating blizzard in Annapurna circuit (Thorangla pass 5416m.)
With a couple of hundreds of trekkers. Where, more than 40 trekkers lost their lives, some missing, some people were screaming around, and more than 100 trekkers got injured.
It was a tough moment specifically for us (guide, leader) because we had a huge responsibility to take care of clients. I was perplexed by the whole situation and did not know how to lead the travelers in a safe place. And I wanted to talk about the case with some guide and leaders who were leading the group from different companies.
But, Meanwhile, I saw those guide and leaders leaving their clients on the way and running down the hill. But their clients were screaming alot. Its make me really sad. And at the moment I really felt that there is no more humanity left in this universe.
I rescued those more than 30 lurch trekkers who were left by their guide and leader. And the most amazing things is that during the moment I lost my one side’s shoes and last 7 – 8 hrs I walked without one shoe On 4-5 feets snow level . finally, after 23 hrs reached at the bottom of the hill with around 25 travelers.
